These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

"There are chapters in every life which are seldom read and certainly not aloud."

Carol Shields (1935-2003),
American-born Canadian author
best known for her 1993 novel The Stone Diaries


When was your silent chapter? How old were you when you lived through your chapter?

I was 26 through 28. It was not a time I'm proud of, but I've atoned.


  1. my chapters happened between 8 and 16 not good chapters but I have learned a lot from them and they taught me to be a better person and a great mom.

  2. Hmmmmm my chapters would be ages 19-27 I was a bad bad girl then.

  3. One of my "chapters" was actually a book......and another of my "chapters" was only a couple of pages while I made a very difficult decision. The funny thing about my life is that I honestly feel as though I've lived several different lifetimes within this one. Each phase was more than a chapter- each phase was an entire book.


  4. I adore carol her books. Technically my whole lfe may be a silent chapter...a blip on the radar as i have no great career.never had a serious relationship. oh well.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
